THE JOURNEY OF UNRAVELING YOUR SELF, YOUR EGO, AND HEALING ALONG THE WAY
i WiSH YOU THE BEST OF LUCK




        Finally, I have the opportunity to find a common meeting ground for the ideas I’ve witnessed and formed on my personal journey of evolution and healing. I am, spiritually and emotionally, a small sapling growing strongly and being watered by meditations, introspection, and newfound energy. Behind this body of work, you will see how I dug through thick layers of myself to find the core and then gradually built myself back up to create something raw and new.

            I have been entirely focused on an internal feeling when I sit down to paint; rarely do I have a goal or an endpoint in mind. I tend to let my subconscious mind take over and paint what it needs to release to demarcate the journey. The biggest struggles I’ve faced are reaching emotional blockades or not feeling connected to the work, but now that I see the set of images coming together, I really feel as if the storyline has worked itself out into something beautiful and tangible.

            This body of work has definitely only begun. I believe that this meditation, reflection, and cathartic work is a practice that will continue on. This first round of images can be seen as a first step that is being reached in my healing process. I will look back at these pieces and remember the toil that accompanied them, along with the peace that was found in releasing them from my head and energy. I hope to continue this practice until the entire story unfolds, and I am so lucky to be able to share this with you.
